    In some countries they are called "instrumentistas"

    I go with In-house! "Instrumentista" is taken more as a concept related to musicians.

    It´s depends on the country:

    In LatinAmerica is: Instrumentador quirúrgico, o instrumentadora quirúrgica
    In Spain is: Instrumentista quirúrgico.

    The (associate´s) degree is Instrumentación Quirúrgica. It´s take two or three years. You would have a Bachelor´s Degree, in two years more and you need to defend the thesis too, it´s called "Licenciatura en Organización y Asistencia de Quirófanos")

    If you want a job description is: person who gives assistance attending surgeons, helping in Operating Room, in tasks requiring constant training in techniques of surgery. A development of nursing, a different carrer, called ORP, Operating Room Personel, nurse scrub or just "scrub")

    Espero que sea de utilidad

    The correct form to ask that is: Who is your target audience?
    but, What did you want me to ask exactly?

    "instrumentista" refers who works (doing or fixing) musical instruments, except in Spain.
    "instrumentador/a" is allways connected with surgery, who works in the Operating Room (US)/Operating Theatre (UK).
    In that countries, the university degree is a little bit different, but role is the same: "Instrumentadores quirúrgicos" preparing, in advance, all necessary before it´s used on the surgery, and also IQ help medical doctors to operate.

    Perhaps you might want to take a look at http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&a...i=&safe=images
    to check that "What is your target audience?" is widely used. As in Spanish, you can say "¿Cuál es el público destinatario?" and it sounds perfectly right (even though we are referring to people).
